Yum yum, I love lamb and Greek cuisine. Went here for Sunday Dinner, the atmosphere is great and so is the food. Will definitely return soon. It deserves more than 4 stars but it is not a 5 yet.

Had been to this place a few times and enjoyed it, the staff were always friendly. Until last night. The waiter was unhelpful from the beginning, got the order wrong, would not give my nine year old daughter one chicken skewer instead of three saying...More
